Famous quotes containing the words hills and/or judean:

    My travel’s history,
    Wherein of antres vast and deserts idle,
    Rough quarries, rocks, and hills whose heads touch heaven,
    It was my hint to speak—such was my process—
    And of the cannibals that each other eat,
    The anthropophagi, and men whose heads
    Do grow beneath their shoulders.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Then must you speak
    Of one that loved not wisely but too well;
    Of one not easily jealous, but being wrought,
    Perplexed in the extreme; of one whose hand,
    Like the base Judean threw a pearl away
    Richer than all his tribe.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
